Need to share

Recommended Posts


I'm a new user and had to come up with a way to share this. Last night about 930 pm, I felt it coming on. That familiar tingling and burning. Put some lysine on it hoping it wouldn't come out. Woke up at 230 am and sure enough there it was, a small red cluster of blisters. I immediately went to the drug store and bought lysine supplements, echinacea, and Reemov(I think that's what it's called). I took 4000 mg of lysine, an echinacea, and put some of the reemov on my lip. Today, 10 hrs later, it hasn't gotten any worse. :-) Usually by now its all flared up and gross. Very unnoticeable. Until it's cleared up, I'll take 4000 mg of lysine a day (not all at once), echinacea, and continue to apply the reemov. I'll keep y'all posted.

Take it easy on the lysine

take a look at the link on the right "What is Lysine". It states some side effects with taking too much Lysine. They recommend only 1250mg a day. and Lysine is not meant for an instant cure. It is supposed to help prevent outbreaks before you even feel them.

I hope these other drugs you mention work for you.

Good luck!

      I had my first outbreak in June, very close to the date of your post. I healed up before the end of the month and it was about as many as you mentioned. I have gHSV1. The test was done on the left under the head of my penis because I had mostly healed by the time I made it to the doctor. There has been pain ever since in that one spot, but there hasn’t been any outbreaks. There are visible red spots that seem to linger forever. I’m a little concerned about this. Overall I’m lu it it is bite type 2 and I am doing my best to manage it. I hope you are doing well also since June. My wife and I (who I think I got it from) use condoms to prevent her from contracting it genitally. It’s a much more serious problem for women than men, as it can be internal for them and affect childbirth. Condoms are critical until a cure comes around, and there looks to be promising research. Hope you are well.

      I have been suffering from nerve pain after my first outbreak in June. Today I tried a charlotte’s web salve product and it took the pain away. I wouldn’t use it during an active outbreak though for risk of spreading it.

      Unfortunately that is the most common place men get infected!

      They are not the yardstick that you measure your worth with! It also tells you something about each and every one of them! To the ones you treated you well before I would personally talk to them and see if that was actually what he said to them? Maybe he said something different?

      I just disclosed to a man who works in the medical field and he didn't make a big deal at all. He shared his sti results w me I didn't see HSV1 on the test report, so I asked him about it and that opened up the discussion. The discussion of it was maybe 2 sentences tops. That was reassuring. We've since had sex and there was no hesitation or weirdness. So I recommend dating people w medical knowledge
